Biographical publications are a great source of historical information, and one that is often underused. However there have been many publications that contain biographies of Australians from the pioneers through to the early 1900s.

This USB is a collection of 43 different Australian-related publications that contain a significant number of biographies. Some are state-wide, some are Australia-wide, and while some tend to relate to those who made a significant contribution, not all are ... so they are certainly a worthwhile resource to check.

A collection of 43 biographical products, including biographical registers:
 - 35,568 pages
 - 1,486,726 names (estimate)
 - retail price for products if purchased separately $1345.50
 - supplied on USB flash drive with master index enabling searching the entire collection in a single search
 - supplied as fully searchable PDF files–scans of the original pages, with underlying searchable text

Unlike many products available from international data providers, these files are searchable on every word, not just select names (as far as the original text quality allows conversion to searchable text files).
